are not takers in his speech. now, that was as clear a reference to the great paul ryan as anyone could be. ayn rand's philosophy, divide the people between takers and makers, and the president was basically saying we are not takers as a nation. >> that's right. as a matter of fact, he said by helping those who are down and out or in the lower income, we actually strengthen our society, and he's right. and i got to tell you, martin, as i sat there as the son of two former sharecroppers who plowed the land where their foreparents had been slaves and now to sit in the congress of the united states of america, i could relate to that. and i hope and i think what the president is saying is that for -- and he even mentioned a little girl who might be going through some difficulty, may not have some money -- >> growing up in deep poverty. >> but to know she has a chance to be somebody. i could really relate to that. as a matter of fact, it gave me chills and i don't usually get chills. >> there you go, chris. did you get any chills, chris? sorry, chris. congressman cummings was just saying that when t

-term budget impacts of it. what i was struck by, to go off of paul ryan's premise, in 2008, we need to come together because we're all rational people and let's do it for the common good. now it was, we need to come together because there are serious problems out there. climate change is one of them. other stuff, as well. gun control, immigration was referenced. women's rights and equal pay. he said it is time for the rational majority to say enough with this stuff. enough of the climate denial, and enough of the takers versus makers rhetoric. i thought it was an intense pivot of what was happening in the first three years. >> and the best thing, what was not in there. being all hung up about the debt and deficit. he didn't go on and on, even in his speech about the convention, he talked about a $4 trillion deal. if this is an indication of where he is going, we're done with it. >> i want to see what he says about the state of the union. this has to be jointly -- >> we'll have you back. >> thank you. >> no, this is an inauguration night. >> i promise original thoughts when we come back for
that came to mind for me as we saw that striking shot of beyonce and jay-z with paul ryan just behind them is that we've got a 2016 campaign that's going to get going soon enough. what role do people like paul ryan, very influential, play in the resolution of the debates? >> absolutely. now the politics begins. we're going to see the distinction perhaps between leadership and the gaining out of political implications. i would think that even now in the next several months paul ryan and others are better served in putting the nation first and that would drive them for political -- >> he did vote for the fiscal cliff deal. he seems to have been a force forex tending debt ceiling in order to gain some time to negotiate. i think all of that argues in favor of some time to get the right things done. >> chuck gabriel, how did you read or hear the president's passage where he talked about medicare and social security and he said the commitments we make to each other through medicare, medicaid, social security, these things do not zap our initiative, they strengthen it. they do not make us a natio
. we have put particular is down as republicans. host: so the specifics are in the paul ryan plan? guest: they are. host: jeff is in florida. caller: hi. good morning, america. i look at problems and a simple level. use it the solutions solve more than one problem. when we have 45 million lost jobs, the budget goes up. when we have 3% unemployment, your budget goes down. the american people do not know they could add to their everyday life simple things and each time america works together as a team, they can knock off one day of that $4 billion a day that we're spending. everybody hang a sign -- "turn off hot water heater." "turned on hot water heater" in the morning. that will save every american family $30 a month. guest: that is common sense. i like common sense. part of what we get out of this is to grow our economy. we are americans. putting capital at risk and finding new ways to create goods and services that people wante. i introduced the mid-atlantic jobs act 2012. it opens up coastal virginia energy for energy exploration and harvesting. it would create 18,000 jobs. we'
, throwing in that message, i a real jab not only at mitt romney when he devoted convincingly but also paul ryan, house budget chairman, who he'll be dealing with and had made similar comments. what was interesting here was pushing climate change as the defining issue of the era. hard to see -- >> on the heels of sandy, the heels of last year's draught was one of the worst in our country's history going back to the dust bowl, you'd think there would be wind sailing in the right direction. >> that's right. he's putting something in the agenda that wasn't. we already had the pipeline to capitol hill so clogged. these three new fiscal cliffs coming up, gun control, energy infrastructure. he's putting this at the head of the line. immigration actually and even gun control got very little attention here. he mentioned newtown but only in passing. >> so do you think he held some stuff back for the state of the union? >> definitely. the state of the union will be more a blue print, a road map, but here he's talking for history. over the years this president has rightly been criticized for not telli
is planning to go we note former vice presidential candidate, paul ryan, has said he sees that as his obligation to go. of course, i mentioned the leadership, folks like speaker boehner and minority leader mitch mcconnell, they will all be there. let's listen to what republican senator from wyoming, john bar ras, so he told candy this morning about how he is coming. >> as they might stay in wyoming this is not your first rodeo this inaugural? >> no, candy. this is actually the ninth time i'm seeing a different president come into office. my dad took me to john kennedy's inauguration when i was 8. we come every time, republican and democrat, because of this great country. >> reporter: it is important and we will be watching to see how many of the rank and file republican does show up, don. >> so, athena, let's go back four years ago. did john mccain attend anything last time in 2009? >> reporter: did. he attended the inaugural ceremony. he was also at the luncheon that follows the inaugural ceremony here in the capitol, in statuary hall, and not uncommon to see certainly a senator. if
. >> the gathering of gop luminaries, top conservative congressman eric cantor, paul ryan, senate power brokers jim demint, jon kyl, tom coburn, event organizer frank luntz. >> they decided that they needed to begin to fight obama on everything. this meant unyielding opposition to every one of the obama administration's legislative initiatives. they all talked about this and they began to get more and more optimistic and they left feeling practically exuberant. >> count, count them ten official inaugural ball. >> stunning crowd of people. >> the new president had no idea what the republicans were planning. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states and first lady. >> surrounded by supporters at the inaugural balls, the mood was hopeful. ♪ at last my love ♪ >> didn't have a full sense of what washington was going to be like for him. he had not been in the middle of these kind of down and dirty fights. the ugly reality of governing in washington today. >> that really did end up being a hallmark of president obama's first term in office, right, what happened that first night, that
that's not what social security and medicare are, a jab not only at mitt romney but paul ryan, who he will be dealing with. >> when you have a guy who has bullied you in the schoolyard for four years and you finally fight the bully and you beat them like he just did in this election, you're not as afraid of the bully as you was or at least cautious. i think they bullied this president. he went to the mat and re-elected with a wider margin than george bush and saying the bullying is over. we're either going to fight or work together. >> the problem is both sides feel like they were bullied over the past four years and they've got to figure out how to work together over the next four years. i want to talk about yesterday with you quickly and open it up. it struck me as a son of the south, like you, son of the south, second inaugurations struck me as actually more remarkable moment in the history of race relations, because when the president was inaugurated the first time, we all stopped, kind of like everybody in america was collectively at time square looking up at the ticker that said
in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night work
the risks that make this country great. >> the president basically called out republican congressman paul ryan, right there. ryan accused 60% of americans of being takers instead of makers. his party campaigned on reforming medicare, medicaid and social security, but ryan reportedly got booed as he walked through this morning. ryan's reception is a striking reminder of why the republicans lost the election. today the president assured groups like the aarp and labor he hasn't forgotten his promise. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> some republicans are complaining now that the president's speech was too partisan and didn't reach out enough. here is a news flash. this isn't about those republican lawmakers. this is about you, the american people and the policies that the president has put forth. it's about fixing the budget without burdening the poor in this cou
to wisconsin congressman and republican vice presidential nominee, paul ryan, who called recipients of federal benefits takers during the 2012 presidential campaign. >> the commitments we make to each other, through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> obama became the first president to use the word "gay" in an inaugural address, casting the fight for gay rights as part of a broader struggle for equality. >> we, the people, declared today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and stonewall, our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anybody else under the law. >> and if there was any question about whether president obama would go big in his second term, he answered that in this address, laying out an ambitious second-term agenda from tax reform, to immigration overhaul, pr
at jay-z and paul ryan. beyonce and paul, just don't get this together. only in america. >> i want to ask you guys a little bit about the idea of a political speech or policy speech, i heard it, too, when he talked about that we cannot mistake absolutism for principle, it seemed like he was speaking to house republican, am i right? >> as i said he went after them on the takers, the absolutism made the point we have to act now. >> amazing shot there in the rotunda of the capital. thank you very much, mark, as they head in to do ceremonial work and signing, the president and vice president. i'm sorry, david. >> i was just saying he will have discussion now in the country. i think it's good. i think he's learned and frankly over the four years he taking by force of personality he could be a transcending force. he's learned he can't be. he's picked a team, that team is innate to him and he's made i thought an extremely eloquent speech for that side. so i think could in some way an opening for a more honest discussion about what the country should be. >> anyone surprised by the speci
but not rule out legal status for those who enter the country illegally. representative paul ryan has already endorsed rubio's plan. legislators find 39 states are not considering new gun regulations and some may relax their gun laws. having more guns available for self-defense may curb gun violence. >>> the "washington post." clarence thomas broke a 7-year silence during oral arguments. what he was saying was unclear. sources say he was joking about the ivy league and the k transcript only partially showed what he said. he hasn't spoken since 1996. >>> walmart plans to hire any veteran who wants a job and officials project it will lead to 100,000 veterans in five years. >> that's a promise, significant. >> great news. also really quickly again, we want to show while we're doing the papers, the daily news, nra, coming up on the anniversary of newtown, where 20 young children were killed, has put out an app that 4 year-olds can use four years old and up, shoot at targets that are shaped like coffins. >> so get your app. let's go to willie at "politico "politico." >>> chief white house correspo
fan of your work in talking about paul ryan's budget, and thank you for speaking out about gun violence. talk to us about what you are doing now. >> what we have realized is that gun violence is a serious problem in our country. and what we have done is see the links of safety for our society, especially in low-income communities, when we heard that over 900 people have died by gun violence in the month since sandy hook, we realize this is a huge problem for our society, and is undermining our constitution. so we said we have to step up. we have got a lot on our plate, but this is one issue we need to speak up about so we're doing it. >> stephanie: absolutely. and sister it is interesting -- i don't know which statistic sounds worse, but i think one of the parents at sandy hook were saying that 85% of the children that were killed in the world are killed here. >> oh, my glory, i hadn't heard that one. oh, my glory. >> stephanie: yes. >> i did get to be at the president's unveiling of this program, and when he spoke of the one child grace whose picture he ke
, a move that would avoid an immediate default by the treasury. republican paul ryan provided no details on the duration of any extension or conditions that might be attached. he spoke as republicans sought to unify for this spring's budget struggles, looking for ways to maximize their leverage in talks with president barack obama over spending cuts. >> president obama is second inauguration is days away, but do not expect the same pageantry that you saw the first time around. only 900,000 people are attending which is have as many who attended in 2009. this year's preparations have been replete with rehearsals, withstand ends, playing the president, vice president, chief justice. the real president will have to swearing ins. a public ceremony on monday, and a private one the day before. he will use to bibles, one that was owned by abraham lincoln, up the other by martin luther king jr.. >> you will be able to watch the ceremony live on the kron4 morning news on monday. it will start at 8:30 a.m. in the morning. will also have of the parade lot on our 24-7 bay area news channel started a
that paul ryan had used takers. what did you make of that? >> it was a miss-take of what we've been doing. the whole republicans have been doing is trying to protect medicare and social security make it there for the next generation. we believe it's porntd and we believe in greater opportunity and opportunity. >> you heard the president, he said "i reject the idea that you can't keep those entitlements safe and invest in our future in things like education." >> the first thing you can't do any of that without having accountability in a budget. that's why we're taking something up that makes both houses pass a budget or they don't get paid. think about it the last time the senate has passed a budget the ipad wasn't even invented yet. >> congressman, you're going to vote on the debt ceiling. when you make that vote most people believe it's a concession, and you have a new legislative strategy. do you believe you will be able to force a budget by april 15th? >> well, i think the american people expect a more accountable, effective and efficient government. the number
. >> lester, while you were talking, the picture we're looking at now, paul ryan exiting behind jay-z. mitt romney we're told is at home with his wife, ann, in lahoya, california. someone close to them said they did not believe he would be watching today. but paul ryan must be thinking about what a long, strange trip it's been the last couple of months. andrea mitchell, how was the view different from your location? >> well, as you know, often who is challenging the ban on gay rights prop 8. and i was really -- you know, you've talked about the other issues that were addressed in the speech, the substantive issues about medicare, medicaid, entitlements, climate change, the other policies. i was really struck by his saying that we will not all be free. you know, he mentioned stonew l stonewall. that was the horrible riot in new york city in greenwich village against gay rights. he said our journey will not be complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated equally under the law. so that, to me, was another unprecedented mention in an inaugural address. brian. >> and let's go inside
trillion, we're talking about sort of massive reforms probably along the lines of the paul ryan budget which cut $5 trillion in spending. you'd see things like block granting of medicaid and food stamps and, you know, i don't think that they would put in what's called a voucher system or premium support system for medicare. that was, you know, pretty much trounced during the election. but we'll see. you need something with big numbers in order to -- [inaudible] more or less it's probably a smaller debt ceiling increase. and they also need to decide what to do about two other fiscal cliffs that are looming, the $85 billion in sequester cuts that had been put off for two months for the fiscal cliff deal and also the continuing resolution, government funding runs out march 27th. and if a bill's not passed, the government will shut down. now, some thought that republicans would be more willing to use that weapon to try to force cuts because a government shutdown is several orders of latitude less serious than a debt ceiling default. but, you know, behind the scenes appropriators have been
about everything to do with this problem in my opinion. jezebel.com brings us paul ryan once again sponsors a bill that would make it possible for rapists sue their victims. once again being an idiot with his moral stuck in all the wrong holes. he has signed on as a cosponsor to the sanctity of human life act again, that zygote can have bank accounts and everything. now it's back which is scary because not only is the above terrifying there is also some creeping [ censor bleep ] hidden in this monster. if a woman went to a stay that didn't ban abortion his rapist could theoretically sue and could win. i wonder if ryan's career would go the way of the dodo bird. one would hope so. [ applause ] >> stephanie: that's insane. it really is. wow!

eight, paul ryan took a shot at it to his political peril, it was used against him when he was running for the white house. these politicians, they don't really have the spine for taking a shot at these very, very controversial so-called third rail issues and yet you can see the american people want them to, bill. bill: yeah, i think the other number that i find striking today, four years ago unemployment in the u.s. was 7.8%. and four years later on this very day it is also 7.8% as we see the first family now leave the white house, and again make the procession up to capitol hill. yet, i'm not quite sure how much that will be addressed in terms of the inaugural speech today. it may be brushed with more, perhaps a thematic theme than specific. megyn: you can't imagine he will talk about the unemployment rate which obviously isn't very good in this country and is expected now to stay at at least 7% through 2014. president obama promised if we passed the stimulus we would be no higher than 8%, of course we went up to 10%, now we are still hovering in the high single digits. we are told t
beyonce to turn around and talk to paul ryan i can hardly stand it. you just saw beyonce and debbie stabenow that might be the best couple of the day. oh, please. >> i think she is delightful. she really is delightful. i'll tell you. very self-aware. >> you can imagine she doesn't sing the national anthem every day. i mean, this was an unusual assignment for her in this venue, and this is the last thing you want to make a mistake on, and professionally you want to be right on top of your game, so i would imagine she probably felt a little extra pressure there today. >> i have always thought it was a measure of the civic ambition of us as a democracy that we made our national anthem so hard to sing. >> it's a great picture there. >> you know what i'm saying? >> the rotunda there. let's bring in michael steel, the former chairman of the republican party and our pal here at msnbc who is willing to talk to me even when other republicans won't. mr. chairman, i have to ask you, not just about the speech specifically, but about this day and the president has taken pains to say this is abou
one of those shots that you will not see too often. beyoncÉ and paul ryan. we will just leave it at that. just maybe one of those that i am the only one on the planet that makes a big deal about this. all right, going into the hall. the vice president and the president. they have a new lease on life. which at thing, what can we make of that term but we just got word from mitch o'connell that we plan to work with the president and trust he will work with us. >> the problem is you have two very different problems. there are still about $1.2 trillion left in tax revenue that the president wanted to go after. they only got about 600 billion. he did allude to rewriting the tax code. something that perhaps democrats and republicans have been talking about doing. two very different approaches on how to do that. there is a sense of togetherness, neil, that tends to go away when you get back into governing. now, that continues to roll into governing the country. it is not easy. neil: it is very clear that this president has the support of the american people, although, his popularity i
right now. the house budget committee chairman, paul ryan says it might offer a better chance of getting the democratic-controlled senate and white house involved in talks without a deal by march. drastic spending cuts could kick in and the government could face a possible shutdown. there seems to be kate a little movement on that. we'll see how far it goes. >> when they all get back. >>> a key part of every u.s. president's swearing in is of course the bible that he has placed, that he places his hand on when placing the oath of office. cnn's lisa sylvester had a pretty rare look and was able to actually look and touch the bible. >> touched it yourself. >> i've got to say, this was a pretty cool assignment. >> it's very unique and a really neat part of the inauguration. >> this is something that i learned. the library of congress actually has 1,500 bibles in its collection. and one of those bibles will be used during president obama's second inauguration. the lincoln bible, which is steeped in history. so much history in the small box. >> i was thinking this
a liberty-only patriotism which we're hearing from paul ryans but liberty and justice for all, more includ ine realistic. >> fast forward 2016, right? you and i were talking about this, both at kennedy center, latino sale ccelebration. vice president biden made an impression. what makes you think he's trying to vie for the latino votes? >> first of all i know joe biden and i think he's on campaign mode already. we saw a joe biden sprinting through the parade route yesterday. i think he was trying to show us he's a very spry, fit, 70-year-old who will be in very good shape in four years. he became the first vice president to get sworn in by ay ays a latina justice. first vice president to do that. it's a matter of time before we hear joe biden singing or in spanish or reciting irish poetry in spanish because i think joe biden is a very smart politician. realizes how important the latino vote was to this victory. and i think he's prepping himself for a 2016 run. look, he said it at the latina ball the head of the new pack, a hispanic democrat super pac founded and that includes eva longoria
, virginia, with the house caucus last week when paul ryan feared the party and the more radical elements of the tea party which supported him to some sort of compromise short term, at least, on the debt ceiling. >> was it compromise or just a strategy to move a bigger fight down the road? >> i think it's an indication, a telltale sign about where the republicans are. four years ago, when the president was making that speech, republicans were meeting at night. >> exactly. >> deciding how to defeat him when he won for re-election. they lost that, big time. he had a very robust electoral victory and significant popular vote victory. now the republicans are in disarray, trying to organize their party so they have a future. and they're going to have to deal with the reality of that as well. it is a party that is so broken into a lot of parts on the gop side and there's going to have to be a lot of mending down and more outreach as well. >> couple of key areas. the president has focused on energy independence. people close to him say that could be an unlikely bipartisan legacy for president ob
